Aims
SDM1 has the aim that the student, at the end of the course, has all the professional skills of an IT project leader.
This involves communication. leadership, team management, negotiation, personal organization and risk management.
Content

SDM1 resembles the phase in an IT career in which the project leader takes responsibility for the management of a software development project. Within SDM1 we address the project management aspects of the whole life cycle of a system development project, from definition study through system design, system development and system implementation all the way to the maintenance of a system in an operational environment.

The course consists of a theoretical (2EC) and a (4EC) practical component. The practical component is being carried out within "GiP-House", managing students from the "Software Engineering" course. GiP-House closely resembles a real-life modern software house in which the students of this course perform roles as: Project manager, Quality manager, Contract Owner, Public Relations Manager, Director. These roles can be adjusted depending on the specific situation of a given semester (e.g. number of students). All students work, within the management structure of GiP-House, under the supervision of the director, with the aim to create an effective and efficient software house management structure. The managers use, if necessary, (internal or external) experts.
